Q: WHO ELSE WILL BE AT NOMAD LIFE?
From web developers, videographers, photographers, to entrepreneurs or any other creative nomad, anyone able to work away from the stationery office and is able to contribute positively to the community is welcome.
Q: CAN I COME FOR A SHORTER PERIOD?
We recommend making your stay at least one week in order to take advantage of the creative networking available from the community, if you can’t come for a full week then apply through the button to the upper right with the dates that you are available and we will do our best to accommodate.
Q: DO I HAVE TO BE AN ESTABLISHED DIGITAL NOMAD TO VISIT?
We welcome and encourage anyone looking into kickstarting their Digital Nomad journey to come and learn more about this unique lifestyle. Our team is made up of many travellers and nomads who have been successfully working professionally while travelling the world to satisfying our insatiable wanderlusts and are more than happy to pass on the knowledge that we’ve acquired on the way.
Q: WHAT ARE THE ACCOMMODATION AND FACILITIES LIKE?
We are located in the beautiful Rayito de Luna, a unique 11-bedroom villa with an infinity pool overlooking the San Juan del Sur Bay. Please see the Nicaragua gallery for more info about and pictures of the location.
Q: WHAT WILL THE INTERNET BE LIKE?
We will have internet service running at 20+mbps with multiple routers in two work areas. Our wifi is also hooked up to battery back up as well as a generator so despite random power outages, your work will never be interrupted (except of course in completely unavoidable circumstances! Power poles being knocked down in storms etc.).
Q: ARE PETS ALLOWED?
We do have an in-house dog, so other animals will be allowed on a case by case basis.
Q: DO YOU ALLOW CHILDREN?
We typically do not simply due to wanting to ensure a quiet and productive workspace for all our guests, and we all know kids like to have fun! We're happy to suggest a few nearby apartments and if Digital Nomad parents are coworking during the week, we're happy to have the whole family over during weekends.
Q: WHAT KINDS OF PROJECTS DO DIGITAL NOMADS WORK ON?
Many Digital Nomads find a balance between taking on remote freelance work in their field, or kickstarting personal entrepreneurial projects. The team members of our parent company, Life Before Work Travel are used to communicating and working away from a centralized location and many have part-time projects and freelance assignments on the go.
Q: WHAT WILL THE WORK VS. LIFE BALANCE BE?
We encourage everyone who arrives to focus on dedicating as much effort as they would like into their creative goals, but to also remember that achieving a desirable work-life balance is key to maximizing productivity. Many of our activities will be community-driven, and you can expect to find people interested in activities such yoga, hiking, rock climbing, board games, music, nightlife, or anything else San Juan del Sur and the surround area has to offer.
